HS Sports News: NF dominates GI on diamonds

Niagara Gazette —

The Niagara Falls High School baseball team registered 17 hits as a team and created a tie for second in the Niagara Frontier League standings Wednesday when it defeated Grand Island, 21-4.

Taylor Huntsman paced the Wolverines (8-3 NFL) two hits, including a triple, and four RBIs. Joe De'Angelo and Jake Martineau each had three hits, including a double. Martineau also had three RBIs.

The Wolverines scored 10 runs in the first inning. Head coach Joe Contento was happy with his team's performance, citing its offense as much improved since its last game.

"It was quite a contrast from the Niagara-Wheatfield game on Monday," he said. "We only had three hits as a team against them. Today, to come out and score 10 right away was really important."

The teams met two weeks ago, when the Vikings (8-3) trumped the Wolverines, 7-1. 

"We were terrible defensively against them a couple weeks ago," Contento said. "This was a little bit of revenge for us."

Pitcher Joe Colosi hurled five innings and struck out seven batters in the win. He endured the loss to Grand Island two weeks ago, but Contento decided to go with Colosi again.

"It meant a lot to him to get the ball against Grand Island again."

Mark McKenna had two hits and a RBI for the Vikings.

Austin Owens went 3 for 4 with three runs, Alex O'Donnell was 3 for 5 with three RBIs and Zach Monell had a two-RBI triple to go with three runs.

Ben Stich hurled a complete game, fanning 14 batters, to lead the Warriors (10-3, 8-1 ECIC IV). Stich also went 2 for 4 at the plate with two runs. Andrew Ball added two hits and three runs.
